United Way Student Campaign

WOW! What an incredible turnout for our United Way campaign!

Last year our school raised over $1500 in total... This year we smashed that goal and raised over $3,000! (total staff and student giving)

The students can't wait to tape Mr. Rash and Mrs. Gilreath to the wall later this month!

Thank you for giving back to our community!
